BWW Reviews: The Legendary Groove Comes to Life in MOTOWN THE MUSICALBWW Reviews: The Legendary Groove Comes to Life in MOTOWN THE MUSICAL
by Ellen Dostal - May 4, 2015

Turning a profit in the theatre business is challenging at best but it isn't surprising that MOTOWN THE MUSICAL easily recouped its initial investment during its run on Broadway, or its outlay for the First National Tour, now playing at the Hollywood Pantages. The popularity of the Motown sound is undeniable. Even if you wanted to, it's impossible to keep from being carried away by the irresistible groove of the music. And why would you even want to try?

BWW Review: MOTOWN THE MUSICAL Is High-Speed Nostalgic Fun at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing ArtsBWW Review: MOTOWN THE MUSICAL Is High-Speed Nostalgic Fun at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
by Matt Tamanini - Mar 11, 2015

How do you cram 50 hit songs, over 90 characters, and 25 years of history from one of music's most important companies into a dramatically satisfying, two hour and 45 minute musical? The answer is, you don't; but based on the enthusiastic response to MOTOWN THE MUSICAL, playing at Orlando's Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts through March 15th, that really doesn't matter. What does matter is that the music of Motown (the record company and the musical) is here to make people happy. That mantra is repeated multiple times during the show's most difficult situations by its central figure, Berry Gordy. According to the musical, Motown's founder created the most successful independent record label of all-time on little more than determination and a desire to spread joy. As anyone familiar with Motown's mile-long string of hits, or the stage show that they inspired, can attest to, Gordy, Hitsville U.S.A., and MOTOWN THE MUSICAL more than delivered on creating joy for countless generations of music fans.
